The 'staches' of Hawthorn

AFL 2014 Media - Hawthorn Family Day

Ben Stratton is part of a select group of Hawks to have donned a mean 'mo' at times during his AFL career.

With a few Hawthorn staff members floating around the office this month with moustaches in support of the fantastic Movember cause, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to reminisce on some of the best ‘mos’ in Hawk history... 

Leigh Matthews

Arguably the greatest player of all-time, Leigh Matthews also sports one of the most iconic moustaches the game has ever seen. The four-time premiership player and four-time premiership coach would be virtually unrecognisable without that thick tuft of hair lining his upper lip. This stache undoubtedly adds to the intimidating figure that is ‘Lethal’ Leigh.

Robert DiPierdomenico

If there was to be a question of any ‘flavour saver’ that would rival the fame of Matthews’, it would be the one that belongs to ‘Dipper’. That big, bushy...

'Next lap of history' commences

AFL 2016 Media - Pride Round Launch 090816

Kennett introduced new CEO Justin Reeves to staff and players on Wednesday morning.

Hawthorn Football Club President Jeff Kennett has today introduced new CEO Justin Reeves to staff and players. 

Kennett affirmed that Reeves’ appointment marks an exciting time for the Hawks, but reiterated that no individual is bigger than the club. 

“We’re thrilled to have Justin on board and we’re extremely confident that he is the right person to lead the club in its next lap of history.

“While we’re excited about this new chapter, each individual is aware that we are only temporary custodians of the Hawthorn Football Club, with the overarching aim of leaving the club in a better position than we found it.

“We’ve got a fantastic group of staff and players who respect and live by the club’s values, and we can’t wait to launch into the 2018 season and beyond.”

Cousins aims for "bigger and better"

Hawks Cup Sweep It's time for the big race, that means it's time for a cup sweep. Teia and Blake do the rounds to see who gets the free feed by winning this year's race.

After missing the second half of the 2017 season following a shoulder reconstruction, young Hawk James Cousins is set on becoming “bigger and better” as 2018 approaches. 

Selected with Pick 46 in the 2016 Rookie Draft, Cousins quickly impressed at VFL level, becoming the first Hawk from his draft class to achieve an AFL debut. He managed three consecutive games between rounds 10-12, averaging 13 disposals and 4.3 tackles. 

The 19-year-old was hoping to implement his learnings upon return to VFL, but instead had his season cruelled by a shoulder dislocation just three weeks later. 

“I was very lucky to get a taste of senior footy early and learn a few things,” recalls Cousins. 

“I felt like when I went back to Box...

The Aussies' best in IRS

SEVEN Brownlow medallists, a swag of Norm Smith medallists and two 400-game legends feature in a best-ever Australian International Rules Series team.

On the eve of the 2017 Virgin Australia International Rules Series between Australia and Ireland, the AFL's national and international talent manager Kevin Sheehan has picked his all-time best 23, identifying six as "outstanding representatives" based on their mastery of the unique skills needed for the round-ball game.

Sheehan's elite six are Dustin Fletcher, Andrew McLeod, Shane Crawford, Nathan Buckley, Nathan Brown and the late Jimmy Stynes, who also represented his native Ireland. 

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first trip to Ireland by an Australian team.

"I've looked back at all the history of the concept and taken into account a range of factors before settling on those who both embraced the concept and excelled at...

Hawthorn's draft steals

Ben Stratton

Drafted with: Pick 46 in the 2009 National Draft

Games: 146 

Since being taken with pick 46 in the 2009 national draft, Stratton has built a reputation as one of the best lockdown defenders in the competition.

Opposition small forwards have dreaded the thought of coming up against Hawthorn and, more specifically, Stratton in recent years given his ability to completely nullify them out of any given game. 

A member of the premiership threepeat, Stratton is never going to be the type to win best and fairests or any individual accolades but those within the club know that the Hawks nabbing the East Perth product late in the draft was a huge win for the club.

  

Luke Breust

Drafted with: Pick 47 in the 2009 Rookie Draft

Games: 161 

Over 100 players were drafted in 2009 before Luke Breust’s name was called out.

Hawks head back to the Gabba

We're back in Brisbane Relive the last game up North as the Hawks are set to return to the Sunshine state for Round 9 in 2018.

The Hawks will likely come up against former captain Luke Hodge for the first time in Round 9 next year.

The clash, to be held at the Gabba, will mark the first meeting between Hawthorn and Brisbane since Hodge headed north at the end of the 2017 season, following a decorated 305-game career in the brown and gold.

It will also be the second-time Hawthorn Coach Alastair Clarkson goes head to head with former colleague and good friend Chris Fagan, as the former Hawks’ football boss heads into his second season as Brisbane head coach.

10th anniversary clash booked in

Rioli boots six against Cats The tradition continues of playing the Cats twice in one year and with two blockbuster dates to look forward to in 2018, let's look back at Round 20 2015 when Cyril slotted six goals against the Cats.

Hawthorn will celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its 2008 premiership when the club takes on Geelong in Round 21 next year.

The blockbuster fixture will be held at the MCG, the venue where Sam Mitchell raised Hawthorn’s 10th premiership cup almost a decade ago.

Of the 22 men who were part of the Hawks’ drought-breaking premiership side, only three remain on Hawthorn’s 2018 playing list – Jarryd Roughead, Cyril Rioli and Grant Birchall. 

Geelong may also field three members of its 2008 grand final team, with just Harry Taylor, Joel Selwood and Gary Ablett (who has returned to the Cattery after a seven-year stint at Gold Coast) remaining on its senior...
